    I'd like to tour the world, visiting loads of towns which have strange names.

    Like the town of 'Poo' in India.
    Or 'Bumbang' in Australia.

    Preferable while I'm still immature enough to find them funny!

    Right now, kissing and sex are topping it.
    Actually, I can't think of much else.
    I'm going to come back in a bit when I am in a different mood :sexface: and edit this post with a list of insightful, erudite and profound wishes...

    I want to visit Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. :wizard:
    Hate to break it to you, but Hogwarts is enchanted so that muggles can't see it. If a muggle sees it, they just see an old ruin with a sign saying "danger, keep out"

    OP, I'd love to roll down a hill on a rolly chair.

    Yes you are right in that you can use it to improve the lives of others such as medicine

    but does it necessarily mean you need to go to oxford and cambridge in order to help others?

    There you go you're quite right it's an aspiration aspirations are important because they give a bit of flavour in our lives, but they are by no means and absolute be all and end all. Aspirations are almost playful parts in our lives, there are other much more important things in our lives. I hope you have taken on board what I have said .
